Module 6

Practical Skills and Competencies

Course Description

The course articulates core skills and competencies that may be used in clinical practice with patients seeking help for infidelity, psychological abuse disorder, compulsive sexual behavior, and trauma and stressor-related disorders. Using a five-stage treatment model for deceptive sexual and trauma treatment (DSTT), the course reviews the structured clinical forms related to assessment, diagnosis, and treatment planning for the abuser, the victim-survivors, and the abusive-injured relationship(s).
Dr. Minwalla introduces professionals to his grounded theory of Intentional Vibe Trauma Treatment (IVTT), designed specifically for the treatment of systemic abuse, injustice, and complex traumatic sequences. Professionals will learn, discuss, and practice skills related to cultivating specific intentional clinical frequencies, which inform therapeutic conditions, the therapeutic container, and the interpersonal dynamic between professional and patients. Professionals will also practice how to conduct specific psychoeducation used for clinical stabilization, and develop skills related to psychoeducation with male abusers, intimate partners and women, and injured relationships. Professionals will also be introduced to theory and skills related to clinical metabolization and learn critical methodology to facilitate healthy processing and integration of abuse and trauma experiences.
